First up, thanks so much for the love on our family post Monday! I loved hearing your family’s traditions and ways for giving back together. It gave us new ideas, and I hope you were inspired, too.
We have two weddings and a handful of parties on the calendar for December, so I was thrilled to find these fun pieces to mix in my holiday styles. I was instantly smitten with the trim fit and shorter length of this luxe velvet blazer, and know I’ll get years of wear out of the classic style.
And I can’t say I’ve ever owned red pants before, but I’m not sure why! How fun are these?! They’re thick and stretchy, and extra sassy! And the leopard stole is gorgeous and so soft. And all of it is up to 50% off!
Fit Tip: The jacket is true to size, I’m wearing a regular 0. And I opted for petite in the pants for a cropped fit, and am wearing 2p. They’re true to size, but I always go up one with petites.
Growing up, my grandparents always had a huge, flocked tree (I can still picture it in their bay window), so they’ve always felt special to me. This is my first year with a flocked tree, and I had so much fun decorating it! Colors really pop against the white, and the whole thing looks so festive.
This year’s tree started as soon as I spotted the pom-pom garland, and I pretty much decorated around it with red, pink, and white accents.
Sugarplum Tip: Wrapped packages can be part of the decor, too! Choose two or three coordinating wrapping papers that pair with the theme of with the tree for a cohesive look.
Continuing with my sassy pant streak, these velvet pants are gorgeous and perfect for so many festive combinations. I paired them with a ruffle-neck tie blouse, and a pop of leopard. They’re so fun with the velvet blazer, too!
Fit Tip: The pants have a touch of stretch for a more comfortable fit than most velvet. I opted for 2p for a cropped fit. The blouse is true to size, I’m in XS.
Here’s a peek of the tree from our Family Room…I’ll be sharing more of our Holiday at Home soon!
Do you have a flocked or green tree? Real or fake? Do you decorate your tree with a color palette or theme each year? I’d love to hear how you decorate yours!
